TRIGGS SHOWS AN INTELLIGENCE SHORTFALL

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



Gillian Triggs gave only a token reference to the Party that caused 2,000 children to be held in detention and no reference at all to the hundreds who drowned. Her love affair with Labor was on display and her lack of impartiality has destroyed her personal political plaything, The Human Rights Commission.

Mark Dreyfus has referred his claim to the AFP that Attorney General, George Brandis, may have committed an offence by “bribing” Triggs with alternative employment if she wished to leave her post. 

It will be given the short shrift it deserves by the AFP. Dreyfus’s charge is laughable and probably explains why he is no longer a practising QC.

Triggs quite understandably had palpitating trepidations over the release of her outrageous report, “The Forgotten Children”. Amid chatter from both sides of Parliament that her role had become untenable, she had asked that Senator Brandis clarify where he stood in relation to her report and if he still had confidence in her.

Brandis then sent a Departmental envoy to Sydney to discuss the matter with her (he was unable to go himself). She was told if she wished to depart the Commission the Government would provide an alternative legal position for her within the Public Service. 

Triggs promptly dismissed the proposition as “disgraceful”, preferring to publicise and politicise the issue (she is very good at those things) despite the fact that Brandis was offering her a way out of a self-inflicted, unsustainable mess.

Senator Brandis understood that even a person like Triggs would know her position had become untenable but he was not prepared to hang her out to dry where there was a possibility of losing a salary package of $500,000 per annum. 

Despite my criticisms of Senator Brandis, no Minister responsible would have handled it differently.

After a Government has publicly declared a lack of confidence in the head of a government agency, that position, as a matter of course, becomes instantly untenable. Decency and procedural propriety requires that person to resign immediately. 

In Triggs’ case she is now dead wood and can no longer carry out her role as an independent Commissioner for human rights. 

She has openly and foolishly disclosed a hostile anti-Government bias that has rendered her impotent and ineffectual for as long as this Government remains in office. She must do the right thing and resign.

But Gillian Triggs has rarely done the right thing... particularly in regard to forgotten children.

Why do we need a Human /rights Commission? What do they do other than provide endless reports and recommendations about how we are a bunch cruel, heartless, racist barstards. Needless to say, they are all Labor luvvies, if not mad Greens! I have no idea why we tolerate such organisations. Australia, and Australians, have proven time and time again that we are a tolerant, generous and caring society. I would very much like to see the end of Triggs and the HRC. And for Australians in general to stop tolerating apologetic hand wringers such as these idiots.

9 NEWS. Triggs denies job offer at her instigation

Lying bitch.
No need for me to go through all the long list of her lies.

She's a labor plant , she is disgraced and the position must be excised.
Can't sack her?
Do the public service thing then and promote her sideways to Tip Manager

what is all this stuff about another spill from Channel 7. It has been reported by that 7 reporter that hates TA. Turnbull has his hands all over this again, I reckon he is plotting with Shorten to get rid of TA. If this is going down I reckon Turnbull can see that TA might, I express might, get these two blokes of in Bali and that would be the end of Turnbull, but I reckon Turnbull is trying to get the PMs position next week just in case the President does come around to TAs way of thinking and MT can say see what I did he is just the arsehole to do it. If TA wins this lot in Bali he could stay there forever and MT wouldn't like that.

This video of Tuesday's Senate Committee Proceedings from the Australian Parliament at http://parlview.aph.gov.au/mediaPlayer.php?videoID=253202&operation_mode=parlview is worth watching, unless you can't control your rage. The behaviour of penny wong and hanson young is appalling and shameful though of course they would take that as a badge of honour - seeing as they have none themselves. Absolutely despicable and disrespectful!! And to know the Australian taxpayer is paying a fortune for them to sit on their blurters and carry on this way is appalling. From about 35:00 onwards for about ten minutes is a good example. It continues throughout but that snapshot will give you some idea of why they should have their microphones switched off and them booted from the hearing. Atrocious :(

WATCH THIS PEOPLE !!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGJhP7dnrK0 ...WE SHOULD BE AWARE ..

On 19th March 2013 Western Heritage Australia held a forum in the Jubilee Room New South Wales Parliament House on the topic "Agenda 21- Environmentalism vs Private Property". This speech is an…

she's 69 years old and mate of Gillards. What's the bet that Gillard has set it up so if she ever gets sacked within her 5 yr period they would have to give her generous payouts etc.

I have posted this afternoon after being blocked by the GETUP BUMBOYS AND DYKES , I have not had a chance to give it to the arselicking and loving labor commo,s or the green hairy& smelly under arm BULLDYKES , you are fucking them with FACT and science LAZZA and I will re-iterate jam that pineapple up futher with a twist your HALAL exposure has em rattled , just like that ALDI ADD on the box , YOU.RE WORTH MORE MONEY LOL.

The dear old befuddled chook should be retired.

David Spears (Sky News) has possession of some documents relating to this Trigg woman, and it doesn't look too good for Trigg. It outlines what has gone on and where she said that she was shocked at being offered a job well these documents don't point to that. Apparently there were other commissioners who wanted her gone and because of that she was offered a job, very different to what she has been saying, another lie from her.

OT. Every morning i go on line to read the news hope one day very soon it says Malcolm Turnbull Hit by BIG BUS DOA.

VOTE LABOR /GREEN ? …. then you are voting away your rights and freedoms

VOTE LABOR /GREEN ? … then you are voting for Islamisation

VOTE LABOR /GREEN ? …. THEN YOU ARE A BLOODY FOOL !

Jeez this site certainly has been hijacked by getup, isn't there anything you can do LP. Anyway, TA has been proved he was right - Headlines QANTAS make 203 million 6 monthly profit. Remember when the Left was bagging TA for not allowing a guarantee to QANTAS he said that QANTAS had to trade their way out of their problems - guess what, they have and the Australian taxpayer did not have to pay a cent. Go Tony, we are in safe hands.

Will be there.

The morons on the left in QT are nothing more than that..... maybe childish morons .... or maybe childish morons with no intellect or manners.

Hi People , .......In light of Turncoat defending the witch above , can everyone who passes by this thread , can you please send this to the Liberal Politicians who support Turncoat .....This is the truth about Christmas Island , making Turnbull sounding like a traitor to the Party Those Politicians NEED to see it . I believe that Chris Smith on 2GB Radio is condemning Turnbull and reckons that he should leave the Liberal Party over his support and constant sabotaging of Abbott >>>.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAC7HjOD3dY

Larry's anti Halal campaign has really hit a tender nerve with the muslims. The hackers are working overtime and hell bent on destroying this site now..

Dear Friend,

The Government will strengthen the foreign investment rules for residential real estate and agriculture.

Today, the Prime Minister and I released a paper (http://lbr.al/7v6s?utm_source=Liberal Party E-news&utm_campaign=df70e5be2a-ForeignInvestment_25_02_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51af948dc8-df70e5be2a-57652189) outlining options to strengthen the foreign investment framework, so that everyone can have confidence that it is in our national interest.

Foreign investment should be on our terms and for our benefit.

Australia’s foreign investment policy for residential real estate is designed to increase housing availability. However, a lack of compliance and enforcement of the rules over recent years is threatening its integrity.

Our approach will see:
* New penalties for foreign investors who breach rules;
* More scrutiny of foreign investment in agribusiness; and
* Dedicated compliance and enforcement resources in the Tax Office.

Foreign investment is vital to Australia’s economy – and our announcement today, will uphold the integrity of our foreign investment system and guard our national interest.
